Enantioselective catalysis by chiral pyridines

    Development of efficient stereoselective methods for synthesis of chiral, enantiomerically pure molecules is one of the most important task of contemporary organic chemistry. We are interested in the development of new pyridine derivatives as chiral Lewis base catalysts for applications in a wide range of enantioselective transformations.
